2015 Emerging Artists Exhibit

Annually, junior and senior art majors from local universities, representing the next generation of artists to emerge on the local art scene, are nominated by their professors, juried by Summerfair and are afforded the opportunity to exhibit their work among their peers. 

 

Terri Kern of Pendelton Art Center offered the students an opportunity to visit a professional work space and gave a hands on Q & A on professional practices. She also judged the works and helped us award the $1000 Purchase Award to the best of show piece. For the first time, Heather Bollen awarded the Jerry Bollen Remembrance Award at the Opening Reception.
